CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Blues Guitar Virtuoso Eric Gales To Perform With Lauryn Hill On The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon!
Los Angeles, CA - Superstar guitarist Eric Gales will be performing live with one of the most celebrated artists in modern R&B, ex-Fugee Lauryn Hill, on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon this July 30. The duo will perform “Feeling Good,” their collaboration for the Nina Simone tribute album Nina Revisited, which accompanies the release of a brand new Netflix exclusive documentary about the late singer called What Happened, Miss Simone? This is not the first time that these two talents have worked together - Hill tapped Gales to help her record studio tracks for her as yet unreleased follow-up album to the blockbuster The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill. Meanwhile, Gales’ own solo album Good For Sumthin’, released in October of last year, has been highly praised, and a new live CD/DVD recorded at The Viper Room is due to be released by the end of the year. Gales will also embark on a massive world tour taking him to India, Germany, and Sweden beginning at the end of this month. See below for dates.
Eric Gales came to national prominence in 1991 when he won Guitar World’s Best New Talent award. A brilliantly dynamic performer, Gales started releasing solo albums and wowing audiences in 2001 with a style and sound that frequently reminds listeners of the late great Jimi Hendrix, whose upside down Fender Strat playing Gales emulates. No wonder then that Gales was asked to headline the extremely popular Experience Hendrix Tour joining a line-up that includes a true who’s who of guitar masters including Eric Johnson and Zakk Wylde both of whom make guest appearances on Good For Sumthin’. Look for more releases from this extraordinary performer on Cleopatra Records!
